Can Pinterest get any hotter? My Business Intelligence Revolution magazine on Scoop.it is becoming all Pinterest, all the time. What is not to like? Visual, easy to use and makes clutter cool and manageable. I’m a believer and just pinned our first pin:
Will post notes and news from our monthly Atlantic BT Internet Marketing Meetup. Next meetup is on NewsJacking the Real Time Web To Cure Cancer – so not an overreach at all (lol). If I wasn’t known for my overreaches I wouldn’t be known and how boring that would be. Stay tuned as we figure out how to use Pinterest to brand, marketing and support our customers and Internet marketing. In the meantime, please check out our NewsJacking Cures Cancer site, tweet and share #MartinsRide and attend our 2.21.12 Meetup in person (4509 Creedmoor Road, Raleigh) or virtually as we stream the event to the real time web.
1 Are there differences in application architecture that are important for the cloud?
It is important to build applications and workloads specifically for the cloud. You will want to carefully consider what services the cloud provider of your choice has to offer and how your application leverages those services.
1 What’s the benefit of hosting in the cloud vs. traditional options?
Reasons not to host in the cloud are few and far between. If you don't host in the cloud, you will spend more in both CapEx and OpEx to manage your applications or websites in a traditional environment.
1 How can I improve the performance of my application?
There are several primary reasons that applications perform poorly, and in some cases it’s a combination of several. 1) Data latency: If your application is making calls to a data source (whether it’s an API or a direct call) and there is latency at the data provider, your application performance will suffer.
The answer is ‘probably yes’. There aren’t many reasons for an application to be hosted elsewhere, aside from occasional compliance standards, or requirements to integrate with local services that would require large amounts of data to move from on-premise to cloud.
